"Wensley Tensel, club doctor at League One Rochdale, told the BBC that the authorities should consider calling a halt as infection levels increased rapidly.

"Should the season still be going on?" he asked.

"In the middle of a pandemic and the spread and all that's going on... we've got these tier four places where people can't travel but footballers can go in and out and take things back to their family, I think it's probably not the wisest thing at the moment."

The Daily Telegraph reported that some Premier League chairmen had discussed informally a possible two-week 'cooling-off' break in the season next month."

Fury as Man U's Edinson Cavani banned for 3 games for Instagram post ( https://www.thefa.com/news/2020/dec/31/edinson-cavani-suspended-and-fined-311220 ).

The word in question was "negrito". Critics of the FA claim this is a term of affection in Uruguay.

Rory Smith:

The Premier League Has a Schedule. It Really Needs a Plan.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/01/sports/soccer/premier-league-man-city-coronavirus.html

"But it is also an instructive example of how the Premier League — and elite soccer as a whole — thinks, how pervasive is its belief in its own relentlessness, how delicate and vulnerable this season remains. The simple fact that Burnley did not play Aston Villa on opening day encapsulates soccer’s myopia, and its hubris.
...

The situation in the Football League, which governs the second, third and fourth tiers of soccer in England, is even worse. In League One, seven of the 12 games scheduled to be played on Tuesday had to be postponed because of coronavirus outbreaks. Five had been missed on Boxing Day, too. There have been calls from some medical departments for a two-week “circuit-breaker” pause to the season to avoid players’ being overloaded by a backlog of matches in the spring.
...

And yet soccer seems woefully underprepared for something that should have been wholly predictable. It is not just that there is little room in the calendar set aside to play postponed matches: just three weekends in the English season set aside for teams to make up games they have missed, but only if they are eliminated from the domestic cups first.

It is that — as the Premier League confirmed in a statement this week — the subject of what happens if the season is paused, or worse, canceled entirely, has not even been discussed.
...

Instead, the Premier League — and European soccer in general — seemed to decide that last season was an isolated problem. Once the game was back up and running, they concluded, this season would look after itself. The show would go on, because the show always goes on. There was no need to do anything different to reflect the circumstances."

I'm in a bit on Man City now.

Is it too early to go big?
